As part of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, Health Educators from the Will County Health Department Family Health Services Division spent their time Friday in the lunchroom at the Valley View School District's Hubert H Humphrey Middle School. The educators from the Health Department had a table set with up a banner display, and encouraged the students to fill out cards about their goals and dreams, and where they see themselves in five and ten years.

The Health Department guests were also wearing T-shirts that said "#Warriers#Goals#Dreams. Similar activities will take place during the Monday lunch hours at Bolingbrook High School. The T-shirts there will say "#Raiders#Goals#Dreams.

The Health Educators were wearing and raffling off T-shirts that said "#Warriers#Goals#Dreams". Similar Activities will take place during the Monday lunch hours at Bolingbrook High School, where the health educators will be wearing and raffling off T-shirts that say "#Raiders#Goals#Dreams." As Health Department Educator Shree Woods stated beforehand, "with students today and all the social media, everything seems to be 'hashtag this' and 'hashtag that.' That's why we decided to put it on both the banners and the shirts, to give this more of a fun, familiar feeling that they could relate to."
